Spring Flowers

Easter was a busy day, with both of my kids and their families here for the day, my in-laws in for the weekend and my mom here for the week. Here's my favorite picture of everyone, except my husband, who took the picture.

I definitely have the spring fever bug and after my mom left I pulled out my watercolor paints. Here are a couple of my paintings:

My mom and I spent the week shopping, visiting our museum and having lunch out a few times. Here we are at the restaurant just down the street from us, having a late lunch of crab cakes and pumpkin bisque. (YUMMY!)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
